"The Wars of the French Revolution, 1792-1801 offers a comprehensive and jargon free coverage of this turbulent period and unites political, social, military and international history in one volume.

Carefully designed for undergraduate students, through twelve chapters this book offers an introduction to the origins and international context of the French Revolution as well as an in-depth examination of the reasons why war began. Aspects unpicked within the book include how France acquired a de facto empire stretching from Holland to Naples; the impact of French conquest on the areas concerned; the spread of French ideas beyond the frontiers of the French imperium; the response of the powers of Europe to the sudden expansion in French military power; the experience of the conflicts unleashed by the French Revolution in such areas as the West Indies, Egypt and India; and the impact of war on the Revolution itself.

Offering extensive geographical coverage and challenging many preconceived ideas, The Wars of the French Revolution, 1792-1801 is the perfect resource for students of the French Revolution and international military history more broadly."

Well spotted.

I've put it on my list, although it sounds as though it might mainly cover the background of the wars and reasons for it, rather than detailed info on the military actions, which I would have preferred since, as far as I'm aware, there seems very little covering such actions available. But knowing the author I am sure it will be interesting to see and contain some hot topics and viewpoints for discussion.
